Harrison shingles

4 posts in this topic

I know that they say 5 bags of shingles but from where? It seems like everyone sells their own bags of shingles but who can tell how many are in a bag? Where do i get them? What's the cheapest place? What do you recommend for the Harrison?

When Greenleaf suggests a certain amount of bags for siding or shingles, they are referring to there own brand of shingles (Under the Corona/Greenleaf line).

They sell for about $5.99 a bag. You can order them direct from the company if the place you purchased your house does not have any in.

Welcome to the forum, peiji, the Harrison is a house I'd like to build some day. The Hobby Builders' Supply catalogue notes their builder used 12 (100 count@ $2.99) bags of the cedar square butt shingles they sell. I think when I build it I'll simulate tile roofing using either card/ lightweight posterboard or construction paper (or some combination of them). I simulated roofing slates on my Glencroft (see havanaholly's Glencroft blog for pictures & how-to). You could also make shingles from sandpaper or papermache eggcartons or the fastfood trays.

I used it on my Glencroft and I get compliments all the time on how good it looks.
